Ford has announced details on their 2013 Police Interceptor models - both sedan and utility vehicles. The two police cars will make their debut at the Ford Championship Weekend NASCAR races at Homestead Miami Speedway Nov. 18-20, 2011 where they will serve as pace cars.
For the 2013 model year, the Interceptor can be ordered with a choice of three powerful V6 engines, with power ranging from 280 HP in the base 3.5-liter TiVCT V6 engine and going up to 365 HP 3.5L V6 EcoBoost version. Both models will be equipped with an AWD system and will be offered with brakes, tires, and wheels specially designed for police duty and the next level of performance.
"Police nationwide asked for a new kind of weapon in the battle for public safety, and Ford is answering the call with purpose-built vehicles – engineered and built in America – that are as dynamic as they are durable," said Mark Fields, Ford president of The Americas.
